Dr Gabriel Katz
PhD (Caltech), MSc (Caltech), Licenciatura in Economics (Universidad de la Republica)
I earned my Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in June 2010. I also hold an MSc. from Caltech and a Licenciatura in Economics from the Universidad de la Republica, in Uruguay.
My work focuses on Latin American Politics, Political Behavior, Political Economy and Research Methods.
My research uses advanced statistical methods - mainly Bayesian statistics, but also causal inference and experimental techniques - to address substantive questions in political behaviour, political economy and Latin American politics.
